Mission Statement

Building pathways of compassionate coexistence between people and wildlife

Description

Madrean Archipelago Wildlife Center was an instrumental organizational facilitator for the Border Wall Resistance Coalition composed of Sierra Club Borderlands, Center for Biological Diversity, Great Old Broads for Wilderness, Voices from the Border, Green Valley Samaritans, and other southeast Arizona artists and activists. This coalition was successful in stopping the illegal shipping container wall in the Coronado National Forest in winter 2022. The destruction occurred in the middle of pristine grasslands that support endangered jaguar, ocelot and pronghorn antelope habitats and critical migration corridors.

Given our organization’s proximity to the border, we are continually engaged in monitoring, documenting, and reporting the environmental and wildlife related injustices with the impacts of the border wall. Currently, we are developing and facilitating Jaguar Rising, a volunteer-run grassroots coalition that seeks to protect endangered migratory species from the impacts of the U.S. - Mexico border wall through a national outreach campaign.
